The thing I can't get over is the GPS performance. I mean, it usually worked with stock 2.1. It worked decently well with 2.1 custom roms and kernals too. once in a while it would take a few minutes to lock though. In addition, when I first tried some of the locked leaks, there were entire days I could never get the GPS to lock. Basically it was getting worse little by little.

I put superclean on it and updated to the EC10 kernel (I think??? it was the one just newer than EB01) and now the GPS is just amazing. Like crazy good. Even today I used it. Turned on GPS with pull down menu and it locked almost instantly. It's been spot on right away, even seconds after I enable the GPS hardware. It's never worked that good. And I can't discern a detriment to battery life in the least. I'm really happy about that ...
